A tranquil, lakeside site in an unspoilt setting, this will appeal most to those nature lovers who want to ‘get away from it all’ and to those who enjoy country pursuits such as walking, fishing and riding. There are 130 casual unmarked pitches on undulating grass and sand with ample electricity connections (16A). The site is lit but a torch is required. The friendly Dutch owner has carefully planned the site so each pitch has its own oak tree to provide shade. The open countryside and lake provide excellent views and a very pleasant environment.
The lake is in fact a 1,000-hectare reservoir, and more than 150 species of birds can be found in the area. The stellar views in the very low ambient lighting are wonderful at night. You can swim in the reservoir, and canoes, pedalos and windsurfers are available for hire. You may bring your own boat, although power boats, quads and motor scooters are not allowed on environmental grounds. Just outside the campsite but part of the Markàdia organisation, a bar/restaurant supplements the site’s own establishment which has limited opening in low season; there is also a swimming pool which is open to the public.
